One thing I have used in several tanks and have had no noticable side effects
on plants or fish, is to spray the submerged plumbing with black epoxy spray
paint.  I have gotten this spray in several small hardware stores.  It is used
on kitchen equipment and is usually available in white or black.  There may be
other colors available.  For the plumbing outside the tank, I use a colored
spray enamel to match whatever surface it is attached to.
